MartinLogan - Motion XT C100 2.5-Way Center-Channel with Dual 6.5” Midbass Drivers (Each) - Gloss BlackModel: XTC100GBSKU: 6531266Top comment
"It took me some quite time to unpack it, but while I was doing it I realized, that I was in front of a really high end product. My old man used to say, about high end sound equipment, “the heavier, the better”, and even if nowadays the design of modern Sound equipment’s has reduce significantly the size and weight of the components like transformers, magnets and big capacitors, that statement is still valid today. ...This is the BEST center channel I have ever listened to in year of being around custom theatre setups, and high end audio/theatre equipment. MartinLogan has knocked it out of the park with this center and at the asking price, it is a phenomenal bang for the buck if you can swing the cost.
